Tennis is a sport with a lot of “love”

September 3, 2007

Jane and I had the opportunity to attend the US Open Tennis on Labor Day. We were guests of the Novartis Oncology department and were able to watch the matches in the Arthur Ashe stadium from a box. Novartis had given tickets to breast cancer survivors and others who work with non-profits helping breast cancer patients. There were a number of ladies in the box enjoying the tennis matches.

We stopped by the Femara booth to say hello to Terri, our Novartis contact who has helped us with both walks. Terri has provided us with a wealth of information as well as moral support. Her cheerfulness always brightens my day when I speak with her.

I was amazed at the large crowd of people. We watched Svetlana Kuznetsova defeat Victoria Azarenka. Tomas Berdych forfeited the match to Andy Roddick due to an illness. The final match we watched was between Tommy Haas and James Blake. It was an exciting match that went to the last set. The game ended on an instant replay challenge which showed Haas had hit the ball within the line.

I walked around the venue taking photos. You can watch a short video of the day here.
